    Love, Love, LOVE this yarn. The price is right and the sheen is amazing! I've used this yarn for literally hundreds of projects. The only thing is that the website says the sett is 12-18, but it's really 20 if you're looking for a tight weave. So keep that in mind when planning your warp length!I always use a 10 dent reed with this yarn.

    I am a professional clothing weaver, and I use a lot of cotton in my weaving. With the decline of mill ends in the US I have turned to this product as a reliable source for 5/2 cotton in certain colors - particularly black.
    Although I love the feel and the sheen of this yarn, at times I have gotten cones that are riddled with snags, knots, and uneven twists. It doesn't happen too often, but when it does it is a real pain - especially if I am measuring out warp! For the price I could wish there was a bit more quality control...... then I would rate this yarn at four or maybe five stars.

      This yarn is perfect for the beautiful intricate lace patterns in my Japanese pattern books. The tops made with this drape gracefully. I love the sheen and the colors.

        Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Cotton 5/2:

        I like the quality, though I thought the spin would be a bit tighter. It does not affect the quality of my project, a crocheted tunic, which I have not yet finished. It does not snarl or tangle easily, which is great because I had to unravel and redo rows several times so far.

            I used my cotton for dish towels. No fraying and never had a broken thread. Also color fast, no running in the wash. Will be back soon for more stash! Thank you for a good product.

              Since I have discovered Japanese pattern books, it has been hard to find yarn or thread that works with the patterns. I was thrilled to finally find cotton thread that comes in lots of colors. It shows off the intricate lace stitch patterns beautifuly.

                finish with great color. It made a beautiful cardigan I'll wear often.

                Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Cotton 5/2:

                I have been quite happy with this product. I seldom use yarns this coarse, so there has been a bit of a learning curve. I am happy with the saturation of the colors, its strength for use as warp, and the speed with which projects advance. It adds texture to which I am not accustomed. However, as I use it more I expect to like it better.
